It’s a Fish Eat Fish World
It’s a Fish Eat Fish World It is a fish eat fish world under the sea. Where the herbivores eat the foliage, small predators eat the grazers, the large predators eat the small ones, and the large ones end up on a plate with garnish, it’s the circle of life. We’ve all seen this on […]
Christmas on Roatan
Christmas on Roatan Welcome to the village of West End, Roatan, Honduras ‘Tis the season. One-horse open sleighs jingling over snowy open fields, Jack Frost nipping, Christmas gatherings with hot drinks around a blazing yule log, in a cozy home covered with a few megawatts of seasonal lightbulbs. It’s the classic Hallmark holiday, and obviously […]
Winter Diving in Roatan
Winter Diving – Roatan Before moving to Roatan I used to work in the arctic during the winter. I really don’t like the cold weather. The whole bit; the end of your nose always feeling cold and wet, toes in the same condition, snuggling under all the blankets in the house while wearing your hoodie […]

How Much Air ‘Ya Got?
How Much Air ‘Ya Got? Like James Bond, John has one. The length of a scuba dive is determined by the amount of air in your tank. When it’s empty, you are done diving. Even if you are still underwater when it happens you are done diving. Then very suddenly you are doing something quite […]

Craft Beer on Roatan
Craft Beer on Roatan The island Roatan is about diving. We have the world’s most pristine tropical coral reef literally at our doorstep. For many scuba diving three and four times a day is not unheard of, but as your dive computer will annoyingly tell you, there must be time spent on the surface, and […]
Shark Attack!!! “BUUGGSSSS!!!!” “BUUGGSSSS!!!!” I hear Mickey screaming at me through his scuba regulator, and the thirty feet of seawater separating us. We are swimming along the edge of a seamount, about sixty feet deep in the Caribbean Sea half way between the island of Roatan and the mainland of Honduras. There is a series […]
Beer in Honduras
Beer in Honduras! Scuba diving is what we do, but afterwards every good diver knows that rehydration is an absolute must. Although all those folks in the know like Padi and DAN suggest bland drinks such as water, on Roatan, and in Central America, the most popular choices seem to be beer, and rum. Today […]
